Airrace – Back To The Start [2011]

“Back to the Start” is the second studio album by British melodic hard rock group “Airrace”, released in 2011. With their debut dating back to the early ’80s a new line-up of “Airrace” was put together to tour and record a brand new studio album for “Frontiers Records”.

“Back to the Start” is that album, and a huge surprise for any melodic hard rock/AOR fan who has not heard of “Airrace” before. “Back to the Start” mixes the best out of the British and North American school of melodic rock, baring the melodic essence of “Shy” and early “Survivor” while integrating masterful/technical arrangements in the style of “Toto” and “Styx”.

“Back to the Start” delivers the optimum in both melody and groove, add to that the stellar songwriting, intense performances, a very convincing lead vocalist Keith Murrell and you have one of the best melodic hard rock albums of the 2011. Honestly it is quite amazing how artistically credible this “Airrace” album is, while I have to say that I was not a big fan of their debut. “Airrace” really got everything right on this second studio effort- melodic guitar lines, thick rhythmic keyboard harmonies, inventive-AOR rhythm section and sensational vocals. “Keep on Going”, “Two of a kind”, “Call me anytime” and “So long” are perfectly indicative of the class of `Back to the Start”.
